I have installed a "no name" firewire card into the PCI slot of my Beige mac. The system profiler sees the card but my firewire drive does not show up when the cable is inserted. Any ideas? Could it be the chipset that is in the firewire card is not supported? Help

Some 3rd party FW cards won't recognize devices until after a restart. Leave the device plugged in and try a restart. I have the same issue on my old Powermacs - no "hot swappable" Firewire.

YOu will need 9.2.1 likely or the firewire extensions from the there to have it work.
